Are You Looking to Hire an Intern?

Usually I don't get too personal around here or shamelessly plug things, as you can probably see from the lack of published solicited material (How many times have I given into those persistent folks at Versus? Zero, to be exact.). This is an exception, and will likely be the only one. But I'd like to apologize in advance for this post having nothing to do with today's NHL news nonetheless.

Let's get to the point.

These are exciting and scary times for me right now. I'm going to be graduating college this spring and moving on and into the (shudders) real world. Assuming the economy continues it's current trend, I won't have to worry about getting a job after I graduate because we'll all be fighting guerrilla wars in some type of post-apocalyptic world.

Or maybe not.

But anyway, in order to graduate I need to get an internship this spring for course credit. That's the final hurdle standing between myself and a diploma. That's where you may come in. Are you looking for interns this spring? Am I someone you could imagine interviewing or possibly hiring?

You do? I am? Well sir/madam, do I have a deal for you!

I am looking for an internship position in the Sport and Entertainment industry that would run from January through at least April 2009. 40 hour weeks are perfectly fine if necessary and I will not be taking any classes during this time (too good to pass up, huh?).

Here's a quick rundown of some of the things that I can provide for you and your organization.

  • Currently pursuing a B.S. in Sport and Entertainment Management that contains the equivalent of a minor in Business.
  • Graduating on time from a major university in the American Southeast (It's a surprise, contact me to find out which one!).
  • GPA above 3.5.
  • Cultural experience in different regions of the US (Southeast, Northeast, urban and rural).
  • Hard working (Have you seen the blog?) and technically held four jobs this summer. OK, so three are seasonal, but still.
  • Already has great experience in operations, managing personnel in addition to public and media relations.
  • Relocation is not a deal breaker.
  • Hours are very flexible.
  • Would prefer a job in hockey, but is open to any job in the field. Jobs in entertainment, food service management and venue management are not out of the question, either.
  • Already has prior experience in golf, soccer, football and college sports organizations.
  • Not too shabby with a camera (
  • Excellent knowledge of computer software; MS Office, many Adobe products, understanding of web publishing.

That's the abridged version. If you would like specific information, to see a resume or simply have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Now back to your regularly scheduled hockey shenanigans.


  1. If you didn't get an email from me you should have. Drop me a line if you didn't.

  2. like I always say, when all else fails, there's always porn...

  3. I'm interning with an ECHL team in Utah, and I know my boss would love more good interns.

    It's unpaid, but it's been very valuable experience so far.

    email me if you're interested, and I'd love to give you more information and get you in touch with my current boss.

  4. that's easy for leahy to say, he has a sweet puck daddy.

  5. Good luck finding an internship! I know I've learned so much about the sporting industry from mine w/ the Red Wings.

  6. I have a web log or "blog" on the world wide internet. If you wish, you could write a few "posts" to be published on it. That would certainly help the resume

  7. Good luck Kevin! I'm doing the same thing (graduating in spring), but I have a summer job lined up to get back some money before i must move, get a car, etc.

    remember, I'm pulling for ya, we're all in this together

  8. Thanks for all the help, everyone.

    @Ryan: I'll def have to email you about that one. I heard these b-logs are really taking off.

    @LD: Good luck in your search... Is GM of the Leafs in your plans?
